Syria and Turkey are rivals, enemies or partners in oil drilling. The USA would be wise to have a carrier size airstrip in the safest part ot the Golan Heights. Obama should lease from Assad an area occupied by Israel. A secret understanding with Netanyahu is best. Arabs hate Isreal more than ISIL. No USA troops should try to stay in the Iraq deserts. Don't openly become buddies with Netanyahu.
The 18 suspected spies held in Gaza executed by Hamas were all in prison when Israel knew where Hamas leaders lived. The informers can do it again. Hamas must make that public and declare fighting will not work.
